How to Configure Continuous Training Campaigns

You created the continuous campaign but want to change some settings. Let's see how.

So you just finished setting up your continuous training campaign through the Continuous Campaign Creator tool, and now you're looking to configure and adjust the perimeters to that campaign. This is the article for you. 

In this article, we will be discussing the following... 

Let's dive in!

Step 1: Navigating to the Training Dashboard 

    To restart the video, Click Tourial and then Restart Tour.

    1. If you aren't already at the home screen of the client portal, start by navigating to the home screen.
    2. Once here, we need to get into the Training Dashboard. There are two paths to get to the Training Dashboard.
    3. Start by clicking on Training in the left side hand menu.
    4. Once the drop-down menu appears, click on Dashboard.
    5. Now that you're in the Training Dashboard, you will see any campaigns you've created listed under Active Training Campaigns. 
    6. To begin configuring the campaign settings, hover over the campaign you'd like to edit to bring up campaign management options. 
    7. Let's go ahead and click the Edit button we just looked at (the blue pencil) to enter into the Training Campaign Editor. 

    Step 2: How to Change the Name & Description

    2. The first page will allow you to change the Campaign Name and Description.

    Step 3: How to Select an Audience

    You have four options for delivering campaigns. 

    1. Fixed Audience
      The fixed audience option will deliver this campaign to a fixed set of users within the company. Everyone that is currently active will be available to select to add to this campaign. Start by filtering, using Select All, and/or selecting individual users. The audience will appear on the right side of your screen under Selected Users. To learn more about fixed audiences, click here.

    2. Dynamic Audience - Full Company
      The full company dynamic audience option will deliver this campaign company-wide. So everyone currently on the platform and any future new users will be added to this campaign.  

    3. Dynamic Audience - Department
      The department dynamic audience option allows you to deliver this campaign to a specific department within the company. Start by selecting a department in the dropdown to see the current user groups. 
      If you don't know how to add departments to your users, click here

    4. Dynamic Audience - Supervisor
      The supervisor campaign option allows you to deliver this campaign to a specific supervisor within the company. Start by selecting a supervisor in the dropdown to see the current user groups. 
      If you don't know how to add a supervisor's email to your users, click here

    Now that you've selected the audience that you'd like to receive this campaign click Next

    Step 4: Reviewing Curriculum

    The next page will show you the curriculum available for this campaign. 

    You can't change the curriculum topics after you've submitted the continuous campaign through the creator tool. This page is simply for your review if you see topics there you don't like. You would need to cancel this campaign and recreate the campaign via the Continuous Campaign Creator tool.

    After you're done reviewing the curriculum, click Next.

    Step 5: Setting the Schedule

    Setting a schedule is easy with our scheduling tool. First, we can talk about how the tool works in conjunction with the Continuous Campaign Creator tool. 

    When you set your Start Date with the Continuous Campaign Creator tool, that is not when the campaign will first deliver. The Start Date is when the campaign will begin to look for the sending perimeter set for the campaign.

    What is the sending perimeter, and how do you set it? Great question! Let's go ahead and dive in on how to set the schedule.

    Admins can update the course scheduler at any point during the campaign. 

    Important note: All parameters for campaigns created with the Continuous Campaign Creator tool are preset to Monthly on the 1st Monday of the Month.

    You can change your parameter with our scheduling tool shown below.

    To restart the video, Click Tourial and then Restart Tour.

    You have five options to adjust the campaign schedule.

    1. Frequency of sending
      By clicking on "Once," you will see a dropdown menu that will allow you to change the frequency of the campaign. 
    2. Changing the frequency of delivery
      The second option will allow you to select Weekly, Monthly, or Quarterly. 
    3. Changing the week of delivery within the campaign
      The third option will allow you to adjust what week you'd like the campaign to deliver in any given month or time period. 
    4. Changing the delivery day of the week
      The fourth option will allow you to adjust what day of the week you'd like your campaigns to deliver on. 
    5. Changing the time of the delivery
      The fifth option will allow you to change the time at which the phishing campaign begins to fire. 

    Continuous Training Campaigns are sent out all at once at the time selected. 

    Example

    In the example above, today is Monday, August 7th at 4:45pm EST. The campaign I would like to edit has been running every 1st and 4th Wednesday of the month since July 3rd. Admins can update my schedule to any day and time for the remainder of the campaign. 

    Notice that when I selected Mondays at 5:00pm EST, I received a warning message. Since the next intended fire time is moments away from now (Monday, August 7th at 4:45pm EST), it's possible the next true fire time will be the following Monday that meets the scheduler criteria (August 21st at 5:00pm EST). If you do not see this message, then you are good to go!

    Any changes you make will be reflected in your Campaign Details pages.

    Once you've set your schedule, the final thing you need to do is click Launch

    Viewing the campaign details

    We now also have the ability to view the details of the campaign on a separate page if we click on the eye icon on our campaign card. To learn more about campaign details click here.
